Found a copy at Best Buy. This is brilliant stuff! Just curious about one thing (if anyone can answer). I distinctly remember hearing the CAPTAIN FANTASIC music on Sesame Street as a high speed film cue. Was this music written by the show's resident musicians, or is it just another piece of generic, never-to-be-identified-or-named production music? Just wondering! Long live the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band!

Oddly enough, I came here looking for the answer to the same question. I just watched the DVD for the first time today, and I recoginzed the Captain Fantastic music, although I didn't remember from where. (I can believe it's also found on Sesame Street, though.) But no one has answered the question of title or artist yet? I hope someone out there actually knows. After all, it's one of those songs that gest stuck in your head, and it will bug me until I know the answer!

The song may have been written by Eric Idle for the show Do Not Adjust Your Set. However, I'm not 100% sure on this.

It appears on a list of his songs on an Idle website but it doesn't say whether he wrote it or not (not that I can find, anyway). http://www.eric-idle.com/music.html

Nope, that's not the cue. The cue in question starts with a villainous sounding march vamp, then the tempo increases and becomes a suspense chase. I suppose an obvious, but time-consuming option would be to go to apmmusic.com and sift through their comedy cues section.

It's most certainly one of the many "library music" written for the BBC.

The "Captain Fantastic" music is definitely production music, though I've not been able to discover its title, or which music library it's from.

I found some "DNAYS" scripts online, but they don't refer to the source of the music, either.

I do know that it was used to underscore some "Danger Mouse" cartoons (by Cosgrove Hall studios, in the 1980s), which, coincidentally, starred David Jason as the voices of Danger Mouse and several other characters. Perhaps, if you were to contact Cosgrove Hall, they'd have a reference to it in their files.
